I changed the zebrano wood in my car to burl and the kit came the same way. It's designed to be universal. They provide enough dash wood strip to cover all the types of dash, and when you cut it to fit around the switches there's enough to cover no matter which dash you've got. I finally cleaned off my work bench and threw out all the excess pieces of burl dash wood.

Be careful when you cut the wood. It's easy to crack it. I used a large pair of tin snips and found that cutting quickly is better than cutting slowly. I got less cracking of the veneer and finish.
